Police Log: Oct. 26, 2012 — Felony arrest

PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh man was arrested following a traffic stop.

Nicholas Belvedere, 31, was pulled over at about 1:45 a.m. Oct. 21 near his home on Sailly Avenue after a Plattsburgh City Police officer suspected he was allegedly driving under the influence.

Belvedere was asked to exit his 1999 Jeep Cherokee so police could administer a field sobriety test along with a breath test.

Police said he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.12 percent, putting Belvedere over the legal limit.

He was arrested and charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a felony, following a previous DWI arrest in August.

Belvedere also faces misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated, operating a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol content at or greater than 0.08 percent and having no insurance on his vehicle.

He was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court and remanded to Clinton County Jail where he is listed as still in custody.

Belvedere is due back in court Nov. 7.
